CTRI Confirms Leading Indian CRO Supports Majority of Hemophilia Trials in India


Max Neeman International is the only CRO in India to manage hemophilia trials according to the Clinical Trials Registry-India (CTRI). Of the total hemophilia trials currently being conducted in India, Max Neeman can boast supporting 80% of these with the remaining conducted by pharma companies. 

Max Neeman International has established a team of experts specialized in carrying out hemophilia trials in response to sponsor demand. The team has the required expertise via involvement of academia with industry, hemophilia trial experience and extensive database of best Investigators for indication to develop innovative approaches to optimize complex study design. Often strict inclusion/exclusion criteria and data analysis for such studies create the greatest challenge for Biotech and Pharma that the company's expertise can address.




Max Neeman is a leading CRO in India that has a focus on hemophilia and bleeding disorder studies, in addition to other indications. Patient enrollment for complex global and multi-centric hemophilia trials is challenging because potential subjects are fewer in number and widely dispersed. With an Incidence of 1 in 10,000 people, India has more than 120,000 hemophilic and thus it has evolved into a preferred destination for conducting such trials because of low cost and faster patient recruitment.

Isotretinoin in India: A tragedy in the offing

Isotretinoin in India: A tragedy in the offing

Isotretinoin is the drug of choice for severe calcitrant cystic acne vulgaris, which often causes scarring and depression from disfigurement. Isotretinoin has been called "the greatest medical advance of the 1980's." A majority of patients with acne are permanently cleared after a four to five months course of treatment. It has also been used off-label for a variety of oncology uses including: cervical cancer, head and neck cancer, squamous cell cancer of the skin, juvenile chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and neuroblastoma. However, the drug is a proved teratogen and carries a significant risk of birth defects, if it taken during pregnancy. Birth defects, which have been documented following isotretinoin exposure include abnormalities of the face, eyes, ears, skull, central nervous system, cardiovascular system, and thymus and parathyroid glands. There is an increased risk …

FDA Restricts Use of Diabetes Drug Avandia

FDA Decides Not to Ban Avandia, but Puts Restrictions on How It’s Used.

Sept. 23, 2010 -- The FDA will not ban Avandia -- but stringent restrictions will make it far harder for doctors to prescribe the safety-troubled diabetes drug.

The European Medicines Agency took harsher action. European sales of Avandia-containing drugs will be suspended over the next few months, although the agency did not formally withdraw approval.

The 600,000 U.S. patients currently taking Avandia can continue to take the drug only if their doctors officially attest that their patients understand the risks, that the drug is helping them, and that no other diabetes drug can keep their blood sugar under control.

New Avandia prescriptions can only be written for patients who, for medical reasons, cannot take Actos. Actos, a diabetes medication in the same class as Avandia, does not cause the heart problems linked to Avandia.

"Avandia will be available to new pat…

The Connection Between Sedatives and
Fractures in Elderly Patients
All drugs have potential side effects. Indeed, at some point you've probably squinted down the laundry list of possible side effects on the package insert of your medications. Common drug-related side effects include blurred vision, drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, heart palpitations, erectile dysfunction, memory impairment, and nervousness. Fortunately, many of these drug side effects occur in only small numbers of people. Now researchers have called into question the connection between sedatives which can cause dizziness and the potential for falls in elderly patients. They point out that well-meant policies discouraging sedative use in older people to prevent falls and fractures may not be necessary. Starting in 1989, New York State required doctors to fill out prescriptions in triplicate for benzodiazepines, the most widely used class of sedatives. Tw…
